I'm having a new IG pool dug today and been doing some reading in this forum regarding plumbing and the pipe sizes. My pool is a 16x30, 3.6 to 5.6 depth, 85pf of pool and 22pf of spa. The plumbing run from equip. Pad to spa is about 17ft straight shot. Current plan calls for 2inch pipe, 3 "jets" in the pool, one skimmer.
I am using 1 Intelliflo VS for circulation and filter, 1 2hp whisperflo for 6 spa jets, 1 superflo for 2 sheer descents and bubbler, 1blower for spa, 400btu, 60DE. SWG.
Should I at least have 2 1/2 in. Pipe through out, 2 skimmers, more jets in spa, more returns? Is plumbing tapered down at the jets and returns? Any advice is appreciated.
